As a writer, you know how to carefully word things
You seem to know all the right things to say
People expect that from us
They expect us to sit on rooftops, chain-smoking, and pour our heart and souls into a lined piece of paper.
As a writer, you can turn the most ugly of words into sheer poetic beauty
As a writer, you can get in a lot of trouble for writing about an individual
That doesn’t want to be written about.
But you do it anyways, because who the fuck cares?
You’re a writer.
However, as a writer you’ll mess up on your grammar, and spelling
So people end up holding it against you
Especially when you babble about the difference between high-waisted jeans and regular jeans
To a beautiful man, who could care less
But is entertained by your loss of words, and with a cunning smirk
That could easily get a writer to shut up
